Speak to the professionals for advice

TAX MATTERS: Best to get professional advice. TAX MATTERS: Best to get professional advice.

DO you receive healthcare in Spain and pay taxes in the UK? This is the question being asked by the Spanish Tax Office in recent months. 

Nobody wants to go to the doctor one day only to be told that they no longer have access to the Spanish health system.

In the past registering on the padron, at the town hall was enough for a foreign citizen to get a health card. Those times have gone and now pensioners have to apply for an S1 form from the DWP to get Spanish health care.

Getting back to tax matters, people have been led to believe that they are able to choose where to pay their taxes, either in Spain or the UK.

This is not the case. Depending on the type of income received by each individual it is deduced if payment of taxes is to be made in Spain or in the UK. So, if you live in Spain and are registered, figure on the padron and have a health card, the Spanish tax man has started to ask: “Why do you not pay your taxes in Spain?”

Many expatriates in Spain have started to receive letters from the Spanish Tax Agency, asking them to regulate their tax situation. 

If this is the case you should not panic.  Seek a Professional’s help who is able to advise the best way forward. If you act sooner rather than later and put your tax affairs in order it will be much better for you.
